was just digging in there uses return 0.  I really have no preference.

Just a note, the new "Perl Best Practices" Damian Conway, suggest a bare 
return is best.  In particular
return undef;
is a bad idea as it'll slip an undef  into list context (so for zero too?) 
which, he shows, can be problematic.

Good book.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible,
 you are,  by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
